The chapel is closed for restoration until work is completed in the fall. The churchyard will remain open. St. Paul's Chapel is part of Trinity Wall Street, an Episcopal parish that has been a part of New York City since 1697. The parish is deeply rooted in the city’s and the nation’s history. Established during the British occupation of New York and recognized by royal charter, Trinity was the first Anglican Church (which followed the services of the Church of England and included the King or Queen in its prayers) in Manhattan. St. Paul's Chapel was founded in 1766 as a chapel-of-ease at Broadway and Fulton Street. George Washington prayed there after his inauguration as President in 1789. Located just across the street from the World Trade Center, St. Paul’s played an important role in hosting recovery workers after the attacks of September 11, 2001.

A quaint little church in the middle of downtown Manhattan. Close to the 9/11 site. The very old tombstones outside the church are something to see. Very basic but really beautiful. A great quiet place to sit and think. Free admission.

Pleasant oasis of calm in the clamor of downtown Manhattan. It seems dropped from another time and couldn't be more welcoming. As a New Yorker who was in town on 9/11 this place holds a special place in my heart as it offered shelter and...More

Lovely church in the middle of a busy street, which makes it even better. The back of the church and the front from the outside could be two different buildings they look so different. Very old spooky grave yard.

The 9/11 memorial was an underwhelming place of souvenir stalls and very loud waterfalls with the visitor centre far to expensive to visit. Popped into this church to light a candle and pray and discovered a beautiful place of multi-faith reverence and history with a...More

Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
